Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
NH-VT Palliative Services (dba The Hand to Heart Project) is committed to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace, allowing everyone involved in the project to safely provide high-quality, personalized care that prioritizes well-being, dignity and trust.
Diversity reflects the ways in which people are different from one another, going beyond race and gender to include culture, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socio-economic background, religion, gender identity and disability.
Equity is fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for individuals working with or for The Hand to Heart Project, counteracting social inequities and preventing the formation of inappropriate barriers.
Inclusion fosters an environment in which individuals feel safe to engage and participate fully because they feel respected, free to express their ideas, and valued for their voice, perspective, and abilities.
NH-Palliative Services and its sole program, The Hand to Heart Project, are committed to these values in all ways, including in our relationships with current and potential members of the staff and board of directors, and with current and future clients and their families.
